As the Giants move toward a 53-man roster, receiver Mario Manningham has been placed on the short-term IR list, according to the NFL Network.
Manningham has dealt with a nagging injury that has plagued him over the past two years. The report also states he'll be set to be released, with his career likely over. In addition, the Giants placed return specialist Trindon Holliday on IR too due to an ankle injury.
According to the Newark Star-Ledger, the Giants decided to go with Ryan Nassib as Eli Manning's backup quarterback. Nassib beat out Curtis Painter for the job.
